This is a four-stroke-cycle diesel engine that consists of four cylinders installed in line with four valves each. This turbocompressor liquid-cooled engine is provided with the reducing gear having the reduction ratio i = 1.69:1. The following embedded systems improve its performance:

  • COMMON RAIL direct injection system
  • all-electronic engine and propeller control system
  • wet-sump lubrication system

CENTURION 2.0 S engines are approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). CENTURION 2.0 S has EASA and FAA supplemental type certificate for the following aircraft models: Cessna-172 and Piper PA28. Diamond Aircraft Industries also installs CENTURION 2.0 S engines into its aircraft, models DA40 TDI, DA42 Twin Star, while Apex Aircraft installs them into Robin DR400 models.
